the stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
you left me in the dark
no dawn, no day, I’m always in this twilight
in the shadow of your heart
florence & the machine – cosmic love

I’d say anyone interested in fashion has an idol or a goddess to whom she adores. Some may say Marilyn, Audrey, Madonna, Edie … or Twiggy. Others may credit the models like Ford, Christie Brinkley, Crawford, or Claudia Schiffier … mind is a tad more elaborate, a diva – and a little too much. My idol, was, and always will be, Elizabeth Taylor.

I hated her style. FACT! But her grace, her confidence – she wore that better than anyone – and everyone could smell that sweet smell, and every day – til the day I die, I will strive to smell that sweet smell.

Check out Cathy’s etsy shop here ; she really has an insane collection of jewelry! We all know how much I love pendant necklaces, especially pocket watch fob pendants. Well Cathy has gone the extra mile, and instead of using the exterior to it’s full potential, this pretty girl gets down dirty and takes apart broken watches, clocks and cogs to create something beautiful and one-of-a-kind. Next on my wish list – THIS!
